I want to use your WIO RP2040 for a small project. I’ve been very disapointed by the quality of the micropython image available. Nothing is implemented as it should, half of the expected methods is not working as intended.
I’ve been experimenting with micro python and arduino.
From what I have seen, resolving a DNS query from a hostname doesn’t work. I checked the firmware that others believe is the source for your Micropython port at:
There is a problem in the get_hostbyname method. I managed to fix it and rebuild the micropython package, but still other functions are missing or not working:
recv : is broken (i know it was solved in the 3rd update of the firmware but the fix is not in the repo) so I can’t have the DNS
bind, listen, recvfrom : simply not implemented.
I’m not saying that your product should have all these features, but at least advertise it correctly and inform on your page about what is working or not.
I’ll probably manage to make it work for my needs based on the arduino code and the repo above, but I’ll have to spend a lot of unecessary time for such.
Could you at least clarify the situation about which repo is the base for the micropython port, keep it up to date and provide some technical details. At least people with time will manage to provide a decent port for micropython or circuit_python.
